Quartersawn drawer sides ()

As much hard maple with which I have come in contact, I've rarely, if ever, found quarter sawn hard maple.....all flat sawn (I realize that there has to be both rift and quarter sawn boards produced when a log is flat sawn)....maybe they are being selected out of the offerings I get.....I use flat sawn hard maple for both drawer runners and drawer sides....no problems noted....but if I had the chance, I'd buy rift or quarter definitely.
